^ The upside of the Canucks vs. Sharks series is that at least one of us will be happy after round 1.
That is true. This is flourished into a great rivalry (I would say even better than Sharks/Ducks) and I can't wait to see this series go long. The only non-biased reason I'm picking the Sharks is because I trust Niemi more than I trust Schnider or Luongo. It's going to be a battle of the goaltenders, as the playoffs typically are.
